The Crafts Council's goal is to make the UK the best place to make, see, collect and learn about contemporary craft.

Our goal

  • To make the UK the best place to make, see, collect and learn about contemporary craft

Our aims

  • To build a strong economy and infrastructure for contemporary craft 
  • To increase and diversify the audience for contemporary craft 
  • To champion high quality contemporary craft practice nationally and internationally

Our values

  • We believe that craft plays a dynamic and vigorous role in the UK’s social, economic and cultural life. 
  • We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to make, see, collect and learn about craft.
  • We believe that the strength of craft lies in its use of traditional and contemporary techniques, ideas and materials to make extraordinary new work. 
  • We believe that the future of craft lies in nurturing talent; children and young people must be able to learn about craft at school and have access to excellent teaching throughout their education.
